Effective aesthetic solutions for acoustic comfort

Effective aesthetic solutions for acoustic comfort,

Acoustic comfort is affected by the levels and nature of the sound being tested in an indoor space, measured in decibels.

The functionality and aesthetics of work and living spaces are usually the primary focus of a designer.

However, often overlooked, they are factors that contribute to employee productivity or residents’ comfort.

Providing a comfortable acoustic environment greatly contributes to the general mood and health of the people working in it.

Kvadrat Acoustics has attempted to meet these challenges by collaborating with architects

and designers to create aesthetically pleasing spaces with perfect sound control, using the characteristics inherent in beautiful textiles.

In this article we will present some solutions applied in 4 interior design projects.
